How many matches from a stick?

The recipe for crafting matches is 1 chunk of sulphur on top of 1 stick. How many matches should that produce? Each match can only be used once to light single fire or fuse.

Remember this is for survival modes, in creative you have unlimited supply of matches. Also, one stick and one chunk of sulphur is not that difficult to get.

    I think it should be eight because a single use is not much

    I voted 4, for as long as TNT is the only thing that requires it. If you have to light torches or lamps on fire later I would say 8-12 matches per stick.

        I’d say 8 would be good then. Matches are tiny but useful. 10 or more would probably be too much.Or we can do the good ol’ 6 if 8 is too many.

    If a stick and coal only makes 4 torches, the same should apply for matches

        And matches are smaller than torches and need less materials to craft for the same quantity… Thus I think 10 is the right number. 8 is not convenient to stack…
